Rule Changes Coming to Old Palm Golf Course
June 13, 2017

Recently, the USGA and R&A (golf's two governing bodies) announced 24 new proposed rules, which are set to go into effect January 1, 2019. In the meantime, clubs around the world are evaluating the proposed changes to provide feedback to the USGA, which will ultimately influence which rules are adopted. Old Palm Golf Club is one of these clubs, and our course will adopt several of the rules early to improve the golf experience here at home. 

An Overview of the Changes

Of the 24 proposed new rules, there are seven our course will be adopting early. Here are the changes members can expect to see at our luxury country club in South Florida.

  • Elimination or reduction of “ball moved” penalties. There will be no penalty for accidentally moving a ball on the putting green, or for searching for a ball.

Three Old Palm residents playing in U.S. Open
June 17, 2015

Three Old Palm residents and members—Lee Westwood, Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen—will be playing in this weekend’s U.S. Open. All of them have finished in the Top Ten in previous U.S. Opens, and Westwood has scored particularly well over the years with five Top Five finishes in the tournament. The 2015 U.S. Open will be played at Chambers Bay in Washington State, marking the first time in history that it will be held in the Pacific Northwest. With its massive, rolling fairways, towering dunes, undulating greens and unpredictable coastal winds, the traditional links-style course is expected to thoroughly test the golfers’ skills. Upon first seeing it, Oosthuizen posted a panoramic photo of the course’s daunting high rough on Twitter and tweeted: “This looks like a proper golf course.” Indeed.

Westwood is eager and ready for the Ryder Cup
September 19, 2014

In the three weeks since Old Palm resident and member Lee Westwood was selected to play for Team Europe in the 2014 Ryder Cup, he has been preparing with a vengeance. He’s been watching his diet, lost more than 20 pounds and been doing double gym sessions—cardio in the morning and weights in the afternoon. To hone his game, Westwood has been playing the golf courses at Celtic Manor, a resort in Wales that has hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010. This year’s Ryder Cup will be at the legendary Gleneagles in Scotland from September 23 through 28. Westwood will be making his ninth consecutive appearance in the biennial match against the United States.
